Pat has been coming to this office for two years and has seen results unobtainable with other forms of chiropractic. It is not that they are all clueless docs out there, it is just that HOW you apply the principle of chiropractic can make the difference between success and failure. We use an upper cervical procedure that makes a lot of people happy because the underlying problem is corrected and they begin to heal. Pat drives three hours to Rockford for this kind of care. Why doesn't the adjustment hold forever for her? well, she enjoys whitewater rafting and other wild outdoor activities that put stress on the spine. I always say, "If you're going to lose your adjustment, have fun doing it!"

I had a startling revelation today. I learned that having a balanced spine is not only important to serious bicyclists, who I have seen in my office, but also to swimmers. Both groups can shave off time from their races. Cyclists, of course, want to have an even stroke between the two pedals. If there is a short leg, it is going to be the fault of the spine being out of balance. A short leg makes the seat shift in the saddle and alters the motion of the stroke (big waste of energy). For swimmers, a straight spine means cutting through the water with less resistance. Two more reasons to jump at the chance to acquire a balanced spine.
